Parents and Grandparents Prog

Parents & Grand Parents Program

PGP is a unique Immigration program called the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) that enables Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their parents and grandparents for permanent residence in Canada.

According to the Canada Parent and Grandparents Program’s yearly quota, the Canadian government encourages interested sponsors to submit an Interest to Sponsor form (PGP).It would help if you expressed your desire to sponsor your parents or grandparents. After that, sponsors are chosen at random from the selected forms by the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) and given invitations to apply (ITA) for the PGP. You can apply to sponsor your parents and grandparents to become permanent residents of Canada if you have already been issued the ITA for PGP.

You must submit two applications for the Canadian parent visa once you have received the PGP invitation, i.e. the sponsorship application and the application for permanent residency. The first application is for you to sponsor your parents, and the second is for your parents to apply for a PR visa, which requires them to apply for permanent residence.

Together, submit both applications online at the same time. After receiving your invitation, you have 60 days to submit your application. In your letter inviting you to apply, the deadline is expressly stated. The parent and grandparent super visa for Canada is an option for those who did not receive the ITA for the PGP.


If you want to apply for the PGP and sponsor your parents or grandparents, you must:

  • Be an Indian enrolled under the Canadian Indian Act, a Canadian citizen, or a permanent resident of Canada.
  • have been given a call to apply;
  • possess a minimum age of 18;
  • residing in Canada
  • having enough money to support your parents and grandparents without needing to be sponsored; and
  • comply with all other standards outlined in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and Regulations.
